It seems to me the majority of squatters are drug using clods...I know there are squatters who keep their heads down and don't upset their neighbours, unfortunately the way they leave some properties smashing things and graffiti internally and externally leave a lot to be desired.I think it has to do with developers having ambitious plans for sites they acquire then the plans don't get approved
Ergo - properties empty so why not move in!!
